Personal criteria and tastes for choosing holidays can be satisfied with destinations in Spain, since a large number of cities on the Iberian Peninsula have a whole cultural offer and ideal activities for holidays. One of the most common tourist destinations for national and international tourists are the islands of the two great archipelagos, remarkably standing out Ibiza, an island in the Mediterranean, with as much history as fun for our vacations.
Let's see below what we can do during our holidays in Ibiza to enjoy every moment.
What to see in Ibiza
Ibiza was commemorated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999, for its biodiversity and culture. It is a perfect fusion between the marine and coastal ecosystem, with meadows of posidonia oceanica, a sea grass native to the Mediterranean. Another of the points for which it achieved this title is for its archaeological sites of Sa Caleta and the Puig des Molins necropolis., both vestiges of the Phoenician civilization that can be visited. From Antiquity to the Modern Age, Ibiza is an island with extensive cultural and historical heritage, which is preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Ibiza, but where you can visit other museums, such as the Ethnographic Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art or the Puget Museum, a stately home from the first half of the XNUMXth century.
As for its monuments, the Cathedral of Ibiza stands out, an example of Gothic architecture built in the XNUMXth century and with Baroque reconstructions. Inside you can find the image of the Virgen de las Nieves, patron saint of Ibiza and the neighboring island of Formentera. It was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest of the Historical Heritage of Spain in 1931. Another example of religious architecture is the church of Cova de Santa Agnes, built around the XNUMXrd and XNUMXth centuries.
A bridge from the XNUMXth century is preserved, the Pont Vell de Santa Eulalia, built in 1720, and the Ses Coves Blanques lighthouse, from 1897, 12 meters high, and which is located in the port of Sant Antoni de Portmany.
If you are looking to visit other towns near the capital, you can visit Sant Josep de Sa Talaia, Es Cubells, Sant Carles de Peralta, Sant Jordi de Ses Salines, Sant Rafel de Sa Creu, Santa Agnès de Corona, Sant Mateu d'Albarca and Sant Miquel de Balansat, among others. Although to seek a haven of peace, tranquility and streets with white houses, you must visit Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera.
Beaches, sea activities and other plans
Another important part of Ibiza tourism is its beaches. Las Salinas Beach stands out, one of the best known and busiest on the island, and that it is usually one of the favorite tourist destinations for public and media figures. If you are looking for a lively beach, you can visit Playa d'en Bossa, where the festive atmosphere is chained during the day and night, until the next day.
On the other hand, due to its costs, you can also count on other activities, such as boat trips to the island of Formentera, which you can hire through the website of excursions ibiza.com, activities to take into account to enjoy the waves and the air of sailing through the waters of the Mediterranean.
You can also practice diving or snorkeling in certain areas, contracting these activities with said specialized company, to enjoy the peculiar marine fauna and flora.. If you prefer to be on the beach and you like sports, you can rent a jet ski on many of its beaches.
In addition, it is one of the islands and areas of Europe with the best nightclubs, among which stand out: Space, Pacha, Gala Night, Ushuaïa Ibiza and DC10, as well as others with theme parties, such as SuperMartXé.
Combining these two aspects, the cultural level of the island, and all the entertainment and nightlife on offer, can turn your vacation into a few days full of emotions to enjoy with friends, family or your partner.
